  • Thank You Hashem for giving me the 5 senses, that I could move,  walk, and talk and for everything that I take for granted Baruch Hashem You give me so much that I could never, ever thank You enough!
  • Thank you Hashem for the great news that our brother Jonathan Pollard is going to be freed from jail.
  • Thank you Hashem for my wonderful children who help me grow every day. I learn so much from them even when I feel annoyed or upset.
  • Thank you Hashem for my great parking space today!
  • Thank you Hashem for waking me up to some real concerns and helping me see things more clearly when it comes to my children.
  • To start the story of what happened to me, I want to explain my weekly schedule. I am young guy starting off with 1 boy, every day I work very hard In a business, But I need more resources to bring in money for my family,So I decided months ago I would buy some closeouts and every Sunday morning.  I would go to the flea market in New Jersey and bring in some extra cash. One Wednesday I was listening to the weather the forecast was stormy throughout the weekend And including Sunday, I thought to myself, the flea market is not an option this week. Suddenly I get a call “hello, I have tons of closeouts want to get rid of now it’s taking up space You could have it for pennies but you must pick up today or I’m just going to throw it out”  What should I do I said to myself I didn’t want to loss such deal I decided to take a shot and rent a trailer to pick up the goods.  I didn’t really have a place to store it so I left the rented truck in my driveway till Sunday morning.  Waking up Sunday morning, I ran to the window, the rain was coming down in buckets.  “I am paying rent on the van anyways It doesn’t hurt to go I have nothing else to do” I said to myself. on the way I stopped for a bagel to bring with me for breakfast. By the time I get to the flea market the rain stopped, But the ground was all muddy and not a person in site, I said might as well eat my bagel,    So I went to were my table was and sat to eat, Couple minutes later someone walked over to me “is this your truck, your towels?” I said yes, he responded “you know I’m on the other side of the market, you are my competition and taking my entire business I’ll buy the entire truck from you how much?” I just thought of a number $4,000 for the truck ,he says “no problem – come please drop to my house” After getting small deposit I dropped the goods to his house and got 4,000 cash Which I wouldn’t have made as much selling one by one. Thank You Hashem
  • As a young boy in Shaare Torah High School,I wanted to Continue after High school to advance my learning, I didn’t have the skills as of yet,A couple of months before applying I was tutored every night to prepare for a test In Gemarah to show how well I can study, day after day I would study just 1 page of gemarah Until I know it ok,It so happened, one Shabbat my older brother invited me to come to NJ, I Took him up on his offer, Being it was a long winter Friday night he told me lets go learn a little, my brothers friend knew me and wanted to study with me, He told me I hope you don’t mind lets learn anywhere an d he picked a gemarah and asked me  a big question and he answered, I thought nothing of it, Months past and the time came to take a test for what I have been preparing for The rabbi spoke to me and obviously he picked up that I have been studying this certain page, He said ok I just want to test you on something new you haven’t learnt, I said to myself great he is going to realize my poor skills and not accept me all that preparation was for nothing , he opened up a page which they will be learning next year and he happened to ask me the very same question I have learned with my brothers friend that Friday night months before, knowing the answer he was amazed that I was able to answer on my own, which he accepted me into the new school to advance my learning  – Thank You Hashem
  • Thank you Hashem For: my awesome $2.50 sandals from 5 below. For the 4 hours I spent on the beach this morning, from 5:30-9:30, alone, thinking about Hashem, especially while watching the sunrise. For the warm water and awesome waves, and the fox I saw on the beach at 6am . For the organic health food store with tons of kosher food near my hotel.
  • Thank you Hashem for our Rabbis that give themselves over to us relentlessly even on a tough day like Tisha B’av-we are so lucky to have them.
  • I was praying to Hashem regarding my parnasah as I was driving. At a red light I stopped and checked my email. Had an email from a customer saying he found an order he was supposed to give to me over a month ago, that it got lost some how. I guess my tefilah helped him find it. Thank you Hashem – Hashem is great! Say it out loud!
  • Here is my thank you Hashem- true story back in 2011 I was speaking to a friend who was having difficulty finding his match , he told me he was going to give up after dating for so long so many years with out any success…  I told him don’t give up hope, I have an idea , Give me your hebrew name I will include your name in the perek shira that I ready every day and god willing Hashem will help and you will find your shidduch soon..  Time went on and about a year and a couple of months later in 2012  my friend tells me Avi you I feel that your prayers are really working.. I asked what do you mean … he says some how my neshama feels very soon I will be engaged … I said ok keep that emunah… then on motzaie shabbat of parshat va etchanan I get the phone call from my friend he said guess what I am engaged your  prayers worked !! I was amazed and I realized that I have reached 515 or 516 prayers of Perek Shira  .. the gematria,numeric value of Veatchanan  and thanked Hashem for answering my prayers  …Prayers are real and said sincerely Hashem answers them and they have the power to turn seemingly helpless situations into miracles …
